Somewhat Super

Super Bowl Sunday has come and gone for another year....I don't know about you, but for once the game itself overshadowed the commercials and the halftime show. Let's remember, I'm 50, so the Black Eyed Peas are not going to be my cup of tea. So I wasn't all that disappointed in the halftime show they and others put on at the big game.

The National Anthem wasn't all that bad, despite Christina Aguilera's flub on the lyrics, but I thought Lea Michele did "America the Beautiful" better!

But the real drama each year is the commercials. I suppose now we know that the American auto industry is on its way baxk, as there were multiple Chevy and Chrysler commercials (when did rapper Eminem start doing commericals? He was in TWO!). Bud Light ran several that were amusing, but I thought the best were some for Doritos and Pepsi Max. If you're among the eleven people who didn't watch, they can probably be found online.

Oh, and the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers.

I'm on a business trip and saw a lot of proud Packer fans sporting their team colors yesterday in the airports. Good fans.


  • Hi Rick! I did not like the halftime show personally, I liked Tom Petty and The Who much better and am in the same age range as you!
